Gnome-PRO-Lighterblue
Gnome-PRO-Lighterblue +
and
Gnome-PRO-Dark
Made by paulxfce

A clear and easy-on-the-eyes theme that is meant for those who use the Gnome-desktop professionally on a daily basis. The focus in this theme is compatibility: GTK-2 applications and GTK-3 applications look virtually the same. Libre-office, Scribus, Evolution, Geary, Planner, GnuCash, LaTeXila, Geany, the Gimp, Inkscape,...

Chrome, firefox, Web and Opera have no issues with this theme.

About the looks, you will notice some Elementary-theme, Arc-theme and Gnome-OSX.

The second version of this theme is identical but with better (slightly fatter) font-rendering on the interface-elements and GTK3-app's. This should be easier on the eyes, especially on bad screens. This is experimental though, please leave comments if (or not) it actually helps...

There's a third version of this theme (Gnome-PRO-LighterBlue) which uses a softer color (4A85CB) for the selected items. (See screenshot) And, of course, this one has also a '+' version for better font-rendering
Themes now support dark mode!

And a fourth version of this theme (Gnome-PRO-Dark) which is a completely dark version of Gnome-PRO, including GTK 2-applications.

Again, I've spend an obscene amount of time perfecting this theme, so please try it and rate it...


Requirements

First, This theme only works in the gnome-desktop, with GTK 3.20 -GTK 3.24

Next, buttons should be on the right side. If they are not: here is the terminal-code:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ":minimize,maximize,close"

When, as such, theming does not look the way it should be: make sure you have installed the necessary theme-"engines":

- The gnome-themes-standard package,
- The murrine engine. This has different names depending on your distro.
gtk-engine-murrine (Arch Linux)
gtk2-engines-murrine (Debian, Ubuntu, elementary OS)
gtk-murrine-engine (Fedora)
gtk2-engine-murrine (openSUSE)
gtk-engines-murrine (Gentoo)


How to install:

Download the theme you want (Gnome-PRO, Gnome-PRO+, or Gnome-PRO-LighterBlue, or Gnome PRO-Dark))

Just copy the extracted file to a '.themes'-folder you make in your home directory.
Then use Tweak-tool to select the GTK-theme.
LOG OUT AND BACK IN for changes to take full effect !

All your themes are wonderful! It would be wonderful to add gnome-pro with dark headerbars. The color you use in the dark variant is great, I think it would go well with the rest of the bright theme.

There is a version available in the files-tab: Gnome-PRO -dark. Which is a totally dark theme. But I guess you mean just dark headerbars and the rest not dark?

In the app "Gnome Tweaks Tools" the "Global dark theme" switch button is enlarged on any Gnome-Pro themes apparently.
Here is a screenshot of the problem: https://postimg.org/image/xsmktbp3p/

The sliderbutton, and any other button is related to the kind and the size of the font you use. So trim down the size, or change the font (I work with Droid Sans, size: 11)

the issue in Solus OS is because Solus iincorporates an additional gnome extension on the headerbar. Unfortunately this is one that has the odd effect on the headerbar-theming. I have no solution yet... You can deactivate it using tweak-tool > extensions. Than, the theme should work. The double shadow on transmission is strange as I cannot reproduce it myself, could be a side-effect of the text-shadow that is used for the + version. Or the fact that you use Solus OS.
Please use the normal Gnome-PRO-version if it annoys you. I will look into it though. thanks for the comment.

Is there any way to get same big shadows for all windows?

Report

I know, applications that use the headerbar have bigger shadows, other use a titlebar, which is unfortunately shadowed differently. I have not found out yet, what I could do to change that.

This theme is good but I have some issue. When i set the theme with Tweak-tool background disappears and turns gray. Some stripes appear after mouse passage.
See here: https://morphisz.tumblr.com/image/164032789819
+ In nautilus, arrow buttons are very distant from the corner. Title bar is very big in some windows (any plain for a compact version?)
Arc-like buttons are not bad, but i really don't like the + maximize buttons, because remember me some old gtk themes.
Obviously these are just my opinions, thank you for sharing this theme. :-)

product-maker fishears Jul 24 2017

Overall I'm really liking this theme. My only issue is the nautilus top bar buttons are too far from the left, like they expect me to have min/max/close over there and are leaving space for that... It feels odd when other apps have buttons in that space.
